When a high Tech country decides to scrap all her nuclear facilities in the year 2022, we better desist from building them for ourselves. LET US NOT FOOL OURSELVES IN THINKING THAT WE CAN HANDLE IT. Some government official is already thinking of the money he can make on commissions and kick back when the plan pulls through. Wanna bet ?

Honestly, its just a very bad location. With the fault line out there and one thing of importance. Most typhoons come from the pacific side but sometimes they come right from the south china sea and those beaches is the fist land they hit.

I understand.

However, the alternative is to pay the exactions of western industrial - financial corporations.

If the likes of South Korea, China, India, and Eastern Europe kleptocracies can do it, why not Phillipines?

Factual Error!

TMI was NOT built by Westinghouse.

It was built by Babcock Wilcox

Nuclear Engineers trained for BNPP worked for nuclear plants abroad. Since then, PH engineers who have trained for nuclear have also worked for nuclear plants abroad.

We can pay Filipinos who work inside BNPP, the same wages as they would earn working for nuclear plants abroad!

The currently highest Kuryente Prices in the region, if not the world, will prevent the creation of high paying jobs in the PH. It will stunt our economic growth, making us kulelat permanently.

The writers of this blog have no real alternatives.

The atitude of those that wrote this blog, reflects a pervasive talonan atitude which keeps the PH in poverty.

We are not inferior!
Run BNPP Now!
